VPN Setup

I need to setup a VPN on our network.  We have a file server, where the data resides, and an ISA server.  Where do I start?

Thanks!

It's 2 Windows server 2003 machines one with ISA 2004 running on it.  My ISA Server has 2 NICS.  Do I need to get a special router for the VPN?

Freya28Commented:
your ISA server can handle the vpn if you want.  but i would use a hardware devie such as a cisco pix firewall.  if you have a pretty small network you could purchase a pic 501 for about 400 bucks.

So, I would have my standard internet router and then the VPN router?  I assume the VPN router would go inside of the internet router?

Also, what is the best protocol to use?  I see that the Cisco Pic 501 doesn't support PPTP.

Freya28Commented:
the 501 does support PPTP, but it is not as secure as IPSEC.  you do not need a pix if you are runnign arouter that can support the correct IOS that supports vpn.  like the advanced security k-9 IOS from Cisco

It's a Netopia router - I'm thinking it won't do it, as I only had to pay a hundred or two for it.

Okay, I've purchased a Watchguard Firebox.  Does anyone have any experience with that?

Freya28Commented:
not particularly on that device.,  but they basically are all the same.  i believe the watchgaurd has a pretty simple GUI to navigate through

or just check the watchguard site for setup docs
